First/Last - Ancient History

"The story of two old friends fighting in a strip-mall parking lot."

Ancient History is an indie fuzz rock band from Pittsburgh who are dropping their sophomore release entitled Good Friend Electrical on Saturday night with a banging lineup featuring fellow Wild Kindness labelmates at The Funhouse at Mr. Smalls. with the first 150 through the door getting a complimentary copy. Much thanks to Donald Ducote (Guitar/Vocals) for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.

The first album you ever bought?
Aerosmith Get a Grip.

Your last album bought?
Pulp Different Class (found it on vinyl).

Favorite album of all time?
Neutral Milk Hotel In the Aeroplane Over the Sea.

Least favorite/most disappointing album?
I ditched my high school graduation rehearsal to buy the Green Album by Weezer as soon as the record store doors opened. I waited a long time for that record and it was 25 minutes long and totally lackluster.

First concert attended?
Cheap Trick/Meatloaf (Bat Out of Hell II tour).

Last concert? (that wasn't a local show?)
Death Grips in Chicago.

Favorite concert ever?
Beta Band/Radiohead (2 weeks after they released Amnesiac) but I've never danced as hard as did during Daft Punk's 2005 Coachella performance.

Least favorite concert?
I saw Live open for Counting Crows and they covered “Imagine”... that was rough. Also, Kanye sucked live.

Favorite thoughts, experiences about Pittsburgh?
The many nights spent drinking in the Allegheny cemetery at 4am with Angry Dan.

Thanks, Donald. Being the GM of Wild Kindness Records, I am betting your last local show was probably yesterday.
